Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the 1993 Oslo Accords people across the world anticipated the onset of peace and an end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. For Israelis, the Accords generated massive economic growth and a sense of security. For Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, they led to a dramatic rise in poverty and unemployment due to a complex array of closures, militarized checkpoints, and bypass roads, and a vast expansion of the settlement project that fractured Palestinian territories and communities. In 2000 popular Palestinian rage with the new shape of the Israeli occupation erupted in a second uprising or intifada.

In this volume, prominent scholars and journalists examine the dramatic political changes in Palestine and Israel from the Oslo Accords through the second intifada and the death of Yasser Arafat. Their essays address the political economy of the Oslo process, social and political changes in Palestine and Israel, United States foreign policy, social movements and political activism, and the interplay between cultural and political-economic processes. The volume also includes documents, maps, poetry, and graphic art.

Synopsis:

This book examines political, social, and cultural changes in Palestine and Israel from the 1993 Oslo Accords through the second Palestinian uprising and the death of Yasser Arafat. It also explains the failures of the Oslo process and considers the prospects for a just and lasting peace in the region.

Synopsis:

“It is no small task to disentangle the intricate threads of Palestine-Israel relations as these have developed in the recent tumultuous years. These expert essays approach this goal from varied perspectives and with rich insight into the internal workings of the societies themselves, and the international framework in which their confrontations have evolved. If there is to be a resolution to these painful conflicts, and the misery they are inflicting, it will have to be based on comprehensive understanding of the kind that these inquiries provide, with impressive success.” —Noam Chomsky,Massachusetts Institute of Technology

“This is a critical and comprehensive guide to political and cultural developments in Israel and Palestine in the last decade. Some of the most informed and insightful analysts writing today allow us finally to see clearly what official media and politicians have obscured.” —Lila Abu-Lughod,Columbia University
